Dr. Jim Garrow, the author of The Pink Pagoda: One Man’s Quest to End Gendercide in China, made the following claim on Facebook this week that is getting a whole lot of attention. The Examiner reported:
On Monday, renowned author and humanitarian Dr. Jim Garrow made a shocking claim about what we can expect to see in Obama’s second term.
Garrow made the following Facebook post:
I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not.” Those who will not are being removed.
So, who is the source?
Garrow replied: “The man who told me this is one of America’s foremost military heroes.”
Hmm… It’s a stretch to believe Obama would want to fire on all US citizens. But, if Garrow is just talking about Republicans he might be on to something. It would be interesting to hear who his source was for the post.
“I am writing with some words of caution. I used to say that “if
you’re not on Facebook, it’s possible you don’t actually exist.” I think
it’s time to update that, courtesy of Slashdot: Facebook
abstainers will be labeled suspicious.”
Let me be clear, from the very start, I thought the idea of Facebook was a “Very Bad Idea”, and I do not have one. Of course, I keep gettingtold that I should put this blog to a Facebook link, but I am still resisting.
…… OK, Patdown…………….
Sen. Rand Paul told his communications director this morning he was being detained by TSA at the Nashville airport.
The Twitter account associated with Paul staffer Moira Bagley, @moirabagley, tweeted around 10 a.m., ET, “Just got a call from @senrandpaul. He’s currently being detained by TSA in Nashville.”
A TSA spokesman disputed that Paul was ever “detained.” But he was not granted access to the secure area of the airport when he tried to board a flight Monday morning.
The standoff was short-lived. By late morning, according to TSA, Paul had been booked on another flight and made it through the screening process.
Note: The Senator has since said that the TSA Agent “warned” him that if he attempted to “use his cellphone” they would give him the aforementioned patdown!
In the midst of tweeting about a hockey game and an appearance on the Rachel Maddow Show, NY Congressman Anthony Weiner “allegedly” tweeted an picture of himself in his “briefs”.
Throughout the weekend, “Weinergate” has continued to evolve, given that the “tweet” was meant as a private message for a 21-year old Seattle college student, who, according to her Facebook and Twitter, before she scrubbed it, was enamored with the Congressman (can we say “low self-esteem). While Weiner’s office says that his accounts were hacked, Weiner’s usage suggests differently. Furthermore, the Congressman’s office has not allegedly made reports to the FBI to have the matter pursued, despite tighter enforcement of attacks on politicians computer accounts.
In today’s segment of the saga, it appears that the Congressman tweets with a porn star and a teenager (yes…. allegedly). And all from his official @RepAnthonyWeiner twitter account. The picture(s) in question link to a “yFrog” account, which is also one of the Congressman’s accounts.
( One commenter notes that the picture actually looks like some middle-schooler…… which goes along with the Congressman’s persona , wouldn’t you say!)
Did we forget to mention that the Congressman has not yet celebrated his first wedding anniversary (July 10th). His wife, Huma Abedin, works for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Bill Clinton officiated at their wedding.
EXCLUSIVE: You can’t make this stuff up, kids. Following their successful partnership with Levi Johnston, Playgirl magazine informs me they’ve set their sights on another young man with a Republican media star in his life: Lucas Bachmann, son of possible presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann.
“I’m reaching out to Lucas because when I researched him I was struck by how absolutely adorable he is,” Playgirl spokesman Daniel Nardicio tells me. “Plus, I think his political ties make him even sexier. We’ve made initial contact, so let’s see how it goes from there.”
But the skin mag will have to move on to another politician’s son (Mitt Romney has five to choose from!) because Bachmann, 28, has officially quashed the idea.
Reached for comment (over Facebook), Lucas confirmed to PopEater that Playgirl reached out and that he wasn’t the least bit interested. For starters, the politician’s son is currently a resident in psychiatry at the University of Connecticut.
“As you can certainly understand,” Lucas wrote back to Daniel. “One must have a certain degree of anonymity when treating patients in the mental health community.”
